Description: This book offers answers to important questions about how educators can meet the needs of gifted Black students in desegregated, predominantly White schools by sharing the lived experiences of gifted Black students from different backgrounds. The book discusses questions such as: How do gifted Black students survive and thrive in de facto segregated Black schools? What barriers faced by gifted Black students from predominantly Black neighborhoods must be torn down? How do culturally responsive parents, teachers, and other educators confront racism and discrimination that impact gifted Black students? Through personal narratives and biographical accounts, this book reveals the triumph of gifted Black students as they and their families confront segregated minds in desegregated racially divisive institutions.
